Federal Hill: Tuscan Fresh

Update: Tuscan Fresh is now closed.

In Federal Hill, a new fast-casual eatery opened up called Tuscan FreshTuscan Fresh is owned by the genius behind Nalley Fresh (a fast casual lunch spot which is known for building your own salads.) When Tuscan Fresh opened, I couldn’t wait to try it. For dinner, a friend and I were looking to try something quick so we walked over.

When we walked in, there were a variety of pastas and mix-ins that you can combine to your liking to create a unique dish.

Some of the mix-ins include proteins such as chicken, tofu, shrimp and other fish, vegetables, spices and more. After you pick a pasta and your mix-ins your dish is cooked to perfection and brought to your table. While you’re sitting at your table waiting for your pasta, you are brought fresh bread. The bread was warm and great to satisfy you while you wait for your pasta.

My friend ordered something basic and got pasta with marinara sauce, mushrooms and a little bit of cheese. All of the ingredients are incredibly fresh and my friend loved her pasta dish.

I decided to go with something a little more creative and my dish contained pasta, mushrooms, chicken, zucchini, mozzarella cheese, red pepper flakes, shallots, pesto, marinara sauce, and white cream sauce. My dish was bursting with flavor and I was incredibly happy with my decisions.
